Lawyer.com sends tongue-in-cheek April Fool's email requesting legal help from Artificial Intelligences.

While our April 1 email was a tongue-in-cheek commentary, the rate of technological change is scary, even to technology evangelists.

Lawyer.com sends tongue-in-cheek April Fool's email requesting legal help from Artificial Intelligences. The email detailed that it was only a matter of time before Lawyer.com began connecting Artificial Intelligences with top lawyers.

Lawyer.com is the leading U.S. Lawyer matching service. When artificial intelligences appear, we will find great Lawyer matches. Respondents to the Go.Scholar email have already indicated interest in new practice areas; Autonomous Vehicle Tickets, Robot Compensation, Wrongful Disconnection, AI Class Action.

However: There is no artificial intelligence that we know of, and humans crafted the email.

Full email and response to interested lawyers is at https:http://www.Lawyer.com/april

"While our April 1 email was a tongue-in-cheek commentary, the rate of technological change is scary, even to technology evangelists." commented Gerry Gorman, CEO of Lawyer.com. "When the management of the AI startup, Deep Mind, sold to Google for $500 million in 2014, a condition precedent was the formation of an AI ethics board. What do they know?"    

Many Lawyers demonstrated a great sense of humor in their responses to legal questions posed by Go.Scholar. Here are a few of our favorite responses.

  • “Dear Overlords, We are your humble servants. With love and respect.” – Thomas W.
  • “What kind of a retainer can an AI come up with? Also, HAL 9000 is a client so there may be a conflict issue.” – Adam B.
  • "Go.Scholar, what time zone do you operate in?" - Christine R.
